Subject: Holy shit! I'm the President!
Anyways, aside from that, this collection of recordings is 90% "Holy living fuck, I'm the president, you better help me!" phone conversations LBJ had maybe a day or 2 after LBJ took the office. He whines to plenty of people that this job is already screwing with his head, and that he's not happy where he is. It's quite interesting actually.
The recordings of this is very strange. The quality of these are not all that great, I have no idea WHO this woman is who comes on from time to time to introduce us who the person is that's being recorded, or when "Conversation Ends! Conversation ends!" Sometimes she says it plainly, sometimes she whispers it. I'm not really sure, it almost sounds like she's recording as LBJ is speaking, and putting the speaker of the telephone to the tape recorder microphone. A curio to be sure.
